Conciousness has always been a enigma. In fact even findings on the contributory neural pathways to conciousness has not been fully mapped out. As of this current writing, there has been 9 identified pathways that contribute to conciousness, although independent functional testing of each pathway is yet to be done. It is daring to think of conciousness as a new state of matter. I found it amusing to read. However, how can one ascribe function to something that one cannot measure or isolate? This...

No one has clearly been able to describe what 'consciousness' is really is. Where does consciousness lie? Most believe that consciousness is a result of complex neural mechanisms and chemical reactions that occur in the brain, but still we don't have an accurate explanation. Did you know that some scientists consider consciousness as a new state of matter Well, they are right. "if you can’t measure something, you’re going to have a tough time explaining it." and since we ca...
